English Version


- Firmware update must be performed in 'Recovery Mode' when updating from previous firmware to the latest firmware. The same rule applies to firmware downgrade when rolling back from the current firmware to an older version.

- If not in 'Recovery mode', installation will shut down with the following error message: "Please use 'Recovery mode' to install new firmware!"

- Before installing new firmware, existing firmware must be removed from iAUDIO 5. There are two ways to remove existing firmware from iAUDIO:
1. Control Panel -> Add/Remove programs -> Remove iAUDIO 5 [Cowon digital Audio Player]
2. Start -> Programs-> Cowon System -> Remove

- Please close all other programs during installation

* Do not remove the USB cable right after upgrading firmware.

* When completing upgrading firmware, iAUDIO automatically turns off and on again. Please check that your iAUDIO is recognized as a removable disk before removing the USB cable from the computer. Because it sometimes displays that it is done before completing upgrading firmware under some special condition such as Windows 98.
